Seabird

There’s a song that was introduced to me quite some time back. Introduced by someone I keenly listen to – and very much to my benefit. He has not only a knack for patience but a wonderfully eloquent affection for music.

It’s called Seabird, by the Alessi Brothers. It’s extraordinary and has a certain but effortless melancholy, enough to suit your very own and quickly dispel it.

And I have been away from land too long and need to come home…

…so I am back with great excitement and enthusiasm – and a familiar sense of calm and serenity that follows an outpouring of words – not indulged for years.

It’s exciting to be again rolling with the blog-post-punches and expressing a little of my one true love and motivation…other than my most beloved motorbike, of course.

Here’s a few from a recent jaunt to the Brecon Beacons in Wales. Skirrid Mountain it’s called, or to call it by it’s real name, Ysgyryd Fawr or ‘Holy Mountain’.

It’s the first time in years I’ve taken pictures only for myself and me alone. Oh how I loved it, running and darting about, falling over and perspiring energetically.

There’s nothing really more to them than a re-stoked fire, picking up a fiercer flame.

And that’s the beauty.

Daydreaming with…St Michael’s

‘Daydreaming with…’ is a concept in motion fronted by UNKLE’s James Lavelle. Last year, he and his band of artists exhibited a body of work that set-about developing the ways we experience ‘art’. Conveying music through imagery, both still and moving, is not new, but the modern interpretations of UNKLE’s compositions are truly astounding and particularly interesting.

This year James and his team have decided to abandon the clean-cut walls and polished glass of a gallery, in favour of a dusty but rather impressive church. St Michael’s is  found off Camden road, and earlier this week endured some really quite severe alterations.

Fire, alcohol, and a few misplaced words seem all too incongruous in such a setting, but it did happen and it wasn’t too bad.

Welcome to my PR bonanza

No doubt a stressed James Lavelle
